4:01 pm
and that's it, construction triggering carmageddon along the 405 in southern california finishing hours ahead of schedule, but way too late for this driver. the details behind this high speed chase that hit almost every other major l.a. highway. first, casey anthony, out there somewhere tonight, living her life. right now, no word of where or how. >> we hate you!. >> harris: protesters among those who gathered outside the orlando jail when the florida acquitted of murdering her two-year-old daughter caylee was set free. casey left jail this morning, her attorney, jose baez at her side. warrening a pink t-shirt, blue jeans and sneakers, said quietly thank you to a deputy sheriff and two armed with rifles. within seconds she got into an suv and vanished into the
4:02 pm
night. a crowd of 300 people screaming as the s.u.v. drove off. they were blocked by orange barricades, mounted policemen, and police cruisers. people in that crowd withstanding a thunderstorm would make their messages clear, most of them anti-casey with a few exceptions. to protest this killer is getting out, that she had such a jury trial that was a joke. a six-year-old would have made a more conscious effort in the decision than what they actually did. >> people need to respect the judicial system and respect due process and let her and her family live their livelies. >> they found her not guilty. does that matter at all to you guys? >> no, she's definitely guilty. >> and then, there was in guy, holding a sign saying casey, will you marry me. >> she deserves a new family, one that's not dysfunctional and i can give her a better family. >> harris: really? that is if he could find her. casey stegall is live for us
4:03 pm
in orlando, casey. >> reporter: harris, good evening, as all of this drama played out across the town and the jail in that release, a steady stream of people have been coming and going from this spot right here. people not just from orlando, not just from florida, but from around the rest of the country for that matter. a spot where three years ago, a meter reader stumbled upon this little girl, little caylee anthony. and stumbled across her remains, tucked away in the woods and now dozens of people have been dropping by here over the weekend, to protest casey's release or to pay their final respects. to a little girl they never met. but one whose story grips this nation. >> and it's hard to, really, compose even just looking at where she was placed at at, horrible. i think they lost sight of caylee within the trial and
4:04 pm
all the stuff and the people who did care about caylee. >> definitely, something that i don't think anyone could ever forget. >> today, our own fox news producer on the ground here in orlando, speaking with mark littman, the attorney for george and cindy anthony, casey's parents and he says that his clients received a text message last night from jose baez, casey's primary defense attorney saying their daughter was in fact safe, but that's all they know. they watched the release just after midnight on television with the rest of us. their home, by the way, just around the corner from where i'm standing right now, and their attorney says that they have had offers from people to buy their house, but they've decided not to sell just yet. harris. >> harris: casey stegall reporting live from us from orlando, florida. casey, thank you. now to the one deal in
4:05 pm
washington that has many people wondering about the the future of america's financial security. the showdown over whether to raise the u.s. debt limits. if congress and the president cannot secure a deal by august 2nd, the u.s. risks default. right now, intense negotiations underway on capitol hill to reach a bipartisan agreement and steve centanni is live with us in washington with the latest. >> hi, with the clock ticking it's a backup plan for any defaults of the u.s. if it's not reached by the august 2nd deadline. here is how the mcconnell plan will work. that would allow the president to raise the debt ceiling in three phases, congress might vote to ace approve, but probably not be able to override the president's veto of the know vote and the debt ceiling could be raised and supporting it, and even so, some republicans still don't like the idea. >> i'm not going to support the mcconnell plan and this is going to kick the can down the
4:06 pm
road and the american senate is here to pick tough choices. they did not give the president veto power, that's not what they sent us here to do. >> reporter: at the same time president boll could call another session at the white house and his budget director said today. there is he' still time to do something big in spite of the looming deadline. >> all right. steve centanni reporting live. thank you very much. uncertainty over the debt deal is tough for americans with mortgages, car loans or credit car cards, even money in the stock market. now two of the largest global credit rating agencies, they may downgrade the u.s. triple-a rating. standard & poor's announcing there may be a 50-50 hans. here is elizabeth mcdonald from the fox business network. what does it mean for the average joe. >> what it means, the borrowing rates could go up.
4:07 pm
more on the bonds to get investors in. lons tied to the ten year notes, their rates would go up. rates on mortgages, rates on credit cards and rates on car loans, nobody is-- the bond market has been reacting nonchalantly. not seeing a lot of action in the yields going up. it could be a short-term problem for the average joe in terms of their interest rates going up. because s & p and moody's is saying that the u.s. government will fix the problem and they'll start paying out, once again and an immediate 45% cut in cash outlays, if the debt ceiling is loan passed, but you know, the bond markets essentially saying, they expect the government to meet its obligations, but the big picture story, quickly, harrison, those two, the s & p and moody's are saying the two credit ratings, you've got to get a grip on the broad zoom. it's problematic, they don't like the long-term spending, they don't like it at all. they want it to be cut.
4:08 pm
>> i have to ask a blunt question. a lot of people are not keyed into this. is it crunch time and the scare tactics that everybody is saying it is. >> it is time for people to care. >> basically if we-- let me back up, if we blow past the debt ceiling. it doesn't mean need default, but they would have to start to prioritize their debt and to s & p and moody's, to them, what's called selective default and the u.s. could cure it by starting to do a payout on the bonds and raising the debt ceiling. again, you've got to tell you, they've said repeatedly, they want the trajectory, the path of our debt to come back. stop the spending and they want us to cut the spending. if we get downgraded. 7,000 towns and cities, those bonds will be downgraded and fannie mae, freddie mac debt. they will be downgraded and problematic and everyone's borrowing costs will go up.
4:09 pm
>> a lot of other people affected by this, too. >> that's right. not just the federal level. it will be at the state and local level. so you can imagine you may need to raise taxes on the state and local levels if the bonds and 7,000 cities and downs get downgraded because the bonds go up. >> you've simplified it for us. >> i hope so, it's an important issue. >> absolutely. and saying on it-- >> a little something is making news and i'm learning maybe it maybe it doesn't have anything to do with it, but the president is report i hadly going to meet with top u.s. federal regulators. you wonder does that have anything to do with the debt crisis? >> you always do that, it's the dodd frank bill that reforms wall street and so the president reportedly meeting with regulators to talk about the dodd frank bill and the new head of what's called the consumer financial technical unit. that sounds like it's mostly on the calendar, not crisis type stuff.
4:10 pm
>> elizabeth macdonald, thank you very much. >> good. overseas, secretary of state, hillary clinton standing strong alongside greece and that country dealing with own debt crisis as you may know. and they're urged to go forward with cuts. >> applaud the greek government, greece has inspired the world before and every confidence that you're doing so again. as do you what you must to bring your economy back to health. you will have the full support of the united states. >> the visit coming as greece prepares for an emergency summit and a second bailout. this was supposed to be the weekend to end all weekend, with millions of drivers inconvenienced by construction.
